A wonderful world of words

by Ron Townsend on Sep 3, 2008

I have tried several times to read dictionaries just to find new words for fresh uses. Mr. Shea does a great jof of picking out unique words.

Anyone who enjoys reading and finding new uses for building his or her vocabulary will enjoy this book.
